Throughout this long offseason, the head honchos at the 4 AFC East Blogs decided to do a rank of each team by position. The plan seemed to be to rank each team's overall depth chart talent from 1st to 4th. The participators included:
[MattyI] from [The Phinsider]
[MaPatsFan] from [Pat's Pulpit]
[Brian Galliford] from [Buffalo Ramblings]
[John B] from [Gang Green Nation]
So, my idea now is to take all of their rankings to see how some of the most informed minds view their teams in relation to the very TOUGH competition of the AFC East. However, since they only ranked a handful of positions, I would take the remainder of the positions into my own hands and provide a rank as accurate and unbiased as possible. Previously, the fantastic four successfully ranked:
I also rated these 5 categories, as well as took the initiative to additionally add and rate the following categories...
Special Teams &
-for a total of 9 total categories.
My goal is to provide an accurate and unbiased (as all possible, although I will throw my opinions in there!) ranking and also see how each blog viewed their preseason team and how they should fare in 2009. My rankings are focusing on OVERALL depth, not just starters.
Teaser alert: The information is very informative so make sure to grab a cold beer now and pay attention so you don't get lost.
How It Works:
Each team gets a ranking 1st-4th for each category. I will categorize them by what I will call position points.
1st place votes get 4 points,
2nd place gets 3 points,
3rd place gets 2 points,
last place gets 1 point.
In all I will show how each team fared in relation to other and will include conclusions WITH my input and votes and WITHOUT my votes.
A complete and detailed analysis of EVERY position after the jump....

This is the one and only position where all blogs seemed to be on the same page. And no wonder why, this is probably the most clear cut position battle of the entire AFC east. The Dolphins depth chart contains one of the deepest in the league, unfortunetly they also have Tom Brady in the same division. Simply put, Brady is good enough for all 3 of Miami's quarterbacks. One of the best QB's to play the game, when he is HEALTHY, there is almost NOBODY better. I am not one to root for Brady but the respect is definitely there. People argue that he is a system quarterback- isn't any great quarterback a symbol of their system? He did take his team to 2 superbowls and with no standout #1 WR. He is the sole reason for the Patriots taking 1st place honors here, and 4 position points in my rankings. However, their depth is glaring, if Brady goes down all that can change. Could Kevin O'Connell or Brian Hoyer step in and have the success that Cassell did? Who's to say.
Miami is an easy choice for 2nd place. They have the comeback player of the year and MVP runner-up Chad Pennington at the realm. There may be nobody more accurate or intelligent in the league at the position. Chad Henne is at worst, one of the best backups I know of and showcases that rocket arm uncharacteristic of Pennington's style. And would any team honestly want to face Pat White, the guy can beat you in so many ways.
The Bills take 3rd, because Trent Edwards can be a great quarterback. I believe consistancy is the problem, but with the weapons this year, Bills fans are hoping he can produce or they will likely be calling for a replacement (or his head). Depth is also a concern, as backup J.P. Losman is jetting out to Vegas in some no name league that not even Die Hard Bills Fans will keep track of.
With an unproven Rookie QB, the Jets belong nowhere else but at the cellar in this ranking. Sanchez is definetly getting the hype, but most rookies start off shaky and If I were a Jets fan (which would probably be the last thing in the world I would ever do. Ever), I would hope he will atleast be decent enough to keep Kellen Clemons off the field.
In total, this was an easy decision, and I believe all teams and fans can reasonably agree with these rankings.

Unlike the last rankings, this is probably the one position that was almost IMPOSSIBLE to rank without atleast some heart in it for your team. The fact is, the AFC East contain some of the most talented and deep backs in all the league.
The easiest decision was to put the Patriots at the bottom. Ronnie, Marshawn and Thomas Jones have shown that they can all be a top back in the NFL. I have had high hopes for Maroney having him on my fantasy team (especially due to the fact that you can’t stack the box because they have the best aerial attack in the league) but realistically, he has refused to do prove anything thus far. I am a huge fan of Fred Taylor, and think he fits well in New England. However he fares best as a complementary back and his age is beginning to show. As well as I think he may do, I don't believe it is fair to put him in the same caliber as the other 3, for now.
The Bills have a duo of backs who have alot of potential. Marshawn Lynch is a good back. Period. He has 530 carries in 2 years, which means he gets the brute force of alot of plays in Buffalo. Fred Jackson can be the next piece to make this the best 1,2 back in the league. But they are not there yet. I believe Ronnie Brown is a better back than Marshawn Lynch, and that health is the only roadblock for him to be one of the best in football. Although Lynch does have 2 consecutive 1,000 yard seasons, Brown has tallied higher YPC in EVERY season, and has proved he is capable of a 10 TD season as well. My point is, if Ronnie had the carries that Lynch had, the numbers would be that much more apparent.
You also have to compare character issues when analyzing the backs. Marshawn has off-the-field issues including suspensions, Thomas Jones has been somewhat of a cancer following the offseason, while Brown has done nothing but been the face of the franchise. Obviously the only thing from holding him back has been a solid, healthy season…. one that Dolphin fans wish to see in 2009. I think the Bills have an excellent pair of backs, but the tough AFC East competition, lack of overall experience, and depth is the reason they end up 3rd in the division for the RB position.
As much as I dislike the Jets, I will agree that they are the one team to challenge Miami in the RB category. 4 straight 1,000 yard seasons seals the deal that Jones has been the most consistent back in the AFC East. Leon Washington is a threat every time he touches the ball. Shonn Green is a rookie, who has proven NOTHING, so it’s tough to rank his performance. But his potential is there, and at #3 on the depth chart, I'd feel pretty happy if he was on my team.
But the dolphins have strong evidence to share the title with the Jets here. Ricky Williams is a beast at #2 spot. Him and Leon Washington could be starters elsewhere but make wonderful complimentary backs. Ricky has as many 1,000 yard seasons as Jones, and he is Miami's second in command. Patrick Cobbs may not SCARE you, but he did so many things RIGHT. He returned kicks, had 2 beautiful TD’s against Houston and is a great blocking back. Lousaka Polite had a perfect 4th-and-short conversion rating. So Miami, with a handful of weapons, and the highest yards per carry, i do not think was a HOMER pick here.
In total, I give NY and MIA a push, with Buffalo slightly behind, and the patriots, much like Tom Brady himself, taking it in the rear. I kid, I kid.

I see this position battle pretty set in stone if i may say so myself, however i see where the debate may start between bloggers. Let me clarify this for all who think otherwise, when it comes to solid WR depth, NE and BUF are on a ho' notha' level (or a HNL as I call it) then MIA and NY. Of the top 2, I give the edge to the Pats, and I am not even considering the QB position in this decision.
First of all, for how they fit on the team... Randy Moss>Terrell Owens and Wes Welker>Lee Evans. Now, I am not saying that Welker is hands down a better receiver then Lee (because that my not be the case), but I think he fits better in his shifty slot position then the other #83 does. All 4 are excellent receivers. Randy Moss's abilities give the Pats the edge, because he has the POTENTIAL to be the best reciever in the AFC (perhaps T.O. does as well, but thats a big iffy) and has carried no baggage to his team.
Buffalo is at #2 looking pretty with Owens and Evans. With solid depth in Reed and Parrish, they sit well above the other 2 squads.
Here is where the debate gets heated. The Ginn v. Cotchery battle is a passionate one, but I'll dismiss crowning a winner for now.
Miami takes 3rd place and here's why. Even if Cotchery is a better #1 receiver than Ginn (which I don't think he is), this is a battle for depth. That being said, Miami has a huge advantage with Bess, Camarillo, Turner, Hartline, and London in comparison to Chansi Stuckey, Brad Smith and David "Bozo the" Clowney. Had NY held on to Coles, or addressed this position in the draft or via free agency, things might be alot different. But they didn't. I feel that Cotchery will find difficulty beating double teams to get open for a rookie QB and nobody will truly STEP UP to help him. Just one of the reasons for fantasy stats, I'd look more at Teddy than Jerricho in 2010.
To Recap: NE and BUF at the Top, and MIA and NYJ looking less star-studded behind them.

So far, New England is looking pretty well, and with a body like Vince Wilfork I award them another 1st place trophy. Ron Brace as a backup, is an excellent substitute; Brace was somebody I hoped my Dolphins would make a move for.
Marcus Stroud and the Bills are the next winner; even though a 4-3 scheme makes it difficult to compare, Stroud is wonderful at what he does and Kyle Williams is a quite a quite playmaker next to him.
The next ranking was so back and forth that it was best settled by a NY and MIA tie. Some think Kris Jenkins is an overrated player who starts hot and fizzles quickly, but I would disagree. Jenkins does have a harder time than most putting in a solid 16 game performance, but when he is at his best he is possibly the best in this class. The reason I can compare Miami's Jason Ferguson to him has nothing to do with stats. I give in, when it comes to recording stats, Jenkins is the overall winner. However, I feel Ferguson's importance to the team is enough to catapult him to Jenkins caliber. He demands so much attention that he allows Miami's young D-ends to make the plays they did last year. JFerg has been doing his job VERY well for the past 12 seasons; just ask Jets fans who watched him spend his first 9 with their team.
Since the bloggers did not rank the entire defense line for some reason, I feel you have to consider overall importance to this position, and both players demand a great deal of attention and are crucial to their team's success. At first glance, both depth chart's appear weak for the position, however, while Buffalo and New England look to be better suited in case an tackle injury DID happen to occur. In terms of NT/DT I'll take New England's Wilfork and Brace first, Buffalo's Stroud and Williams second, and let Ferguson and Jenkins battle it out for 3rd place.

Depth is the name of this game and boy does Miami got it. The Jets have some awesome playmakers but the LB is possibly the most SOLID position in Miami. Channing Crowder does more than call out Rex Ryan. He may be unspectacular to watch but accounted for 113 tackles last year in 15 games (2nd in the AFC East [Mayo]). The Porter/Taylor OLB combo is possibly the most feared in the division to say the least. The old vets still got it. Porter's 17.5 sacks last year led the AFC, and if Jason Taylor stays healthy all year you can bet he will be around the football at all times. Both guys are getting up there in age, but have alot of help from Matt Roth and Dolphin fans are hoping that former CFL player of the year, Cameron Wake, could be the next big name on defense. The only possible "weakness here" is the last spot of ILB made of Akin Ayodele and Reggie Torbor. Both do a good (not amazing) job but have plenty of help to prevent from calling it a "hole in the defense". IMO the dolphins are one stud away (at that ILB position) from being the best in the AFC, and I'm still a bit pissed about passing on Maualuga when we had a chance at a steal in the 2nd round.
NY is breathing down their necks behind at #2 and I am not happy about facing Bart Scott twice a year. David Harris had a quiet 2008, but is a great linebacker. Calvin Pace and Bryan Thomas combined for 12.5 sacks, which is good, but nothing stellar. The linebackers at the Meadowlands are VERY good, but the depth is not quite on Miami's level, and alot of this had to do with draft choice Vernon Gholston doing absolutely nothing last year when the Jets needed him most.
The Pats take 3rd after Jerrod Mayo did something Gholston did not do in 2008- produce. His tackles led the AFC East, but like Crowder, didn't make too many gamechanging plays. Adalius Thomas is solid, but struggles to stay healthy and Tedy Bruschi is nowhere the player he used to be. Losing Vrabel to the Chiefs hurt their overall depth because no other player jumps off the depth chart at you.
The Bills rely on that 4-3 defense, so LB is also a bit difficult to classify. Unfortunetly, their LB's don't seem on the same page as the other 3. Poz is an awesome LB who is all over the field, but outside of Kawika Mitchell nobody is more than mediocre, and it doesn't seem fair to compare them to MIA, NY and NE.
LB Total- MIA (18), NYJ (16), NE (10), BUF (6)
Now, since the rankings seem to be a bit incomplete, I added a few more position battles to include in the ranking.
My Rankings-NE/NYJ (4), MIA (2), BUF (1)
Unlike Defense, I decided to clump the entire Offensive Line together. Based on the amount of solid vets, 1st place is shared by the Patriots and The Jets. The Pats have names like Mankins, Light (or Sir CheapShot as I call him), Koppen, Neal, and Kaczur. All solid at the least. The Jets probably have the 2 most solid vets in the division with Mangold at C and Faneca at LG. I don't think alltogether their 5 is as solid as NE, but with Damien Woody towering at RT, I can't think of anyother way to decide one team from another, thus I'll make it easy and call it a push.
It pains me to put Miami at 3rd because I simply love our young talent, but it would not be fair to put them above NY or NE. Jake Long is possibly the most talented player at the LT position in football, and is the anchor that holds the line together. Jake Grove is an instant upgrade at C, pending his health. Vernon Carey does his job well, and meanwhile at camp, Shawn Murphy and Donald Thomas are fighting for the right guard position. Having one of the youngest O-Line's in the league, Miami is trying to have a tough, physical line for years for years to come, but as of NOW I don't think they are at the peak of the division.
I think we can all agree that the Bills are at the cellar at the O-Line position; compared to the other teams, their line is relatively weak. Losing Peters to FA hurt tremendously and everyone else seems to hide in his shadow. The one highlight would have to be Eric Wood, the rookie guard from Louisville. I am very high on him and I believe this could be an excellent steal.
My Rankings- NYJ (4), MIA/NE (2), BUF (1)
The Jets, who are under new coach, Rex Ryan, seem to be defense-orientated and hold the #1 spot for a top-notch secondary. First of all, Darelle Revis is quite possibly the best corner in the AFC East. And with help from Kerry Rhodes and newly appointed corner, Lito Sheppard, the Jets look to shut down some of the most dangerous receivers this upcoming year. They also added Jim Leonhard, who is a quiet, big-hitting SS. I'm not too sure how much success he might have, but I think the Lito Sheppard was a great pickup as a very clutch #2 corner this offseason.
And what a difference a year makes... After the Dolphins seemed to have one of the league's weakest secondarys in the past offeseason, they made some serious moves after the season's end, and enough to put them at a tie for #2 in the AFC East. First of all, they resigned Yaremiah Bell and added Gibril Wilson from Oakland to form a terrific safety duo. At corner, Will Allen is not the only person who can play anymore. Eric Green, was also added but there have been some concerns of him being burned. The draft answered alot of question marks however, as the Dolphins got an awesome pair of corners. Physical Vontae Davis can match up with the tough receivers (Terrell Owens) while Sean Smith, at 6'3 will not get outplayed and outjumped easily by tall athletic guys (Randy Moss). Nobody else on the depth chart jumps out at you besides Chris Clemons, the rookie safety out of Clemson who was drafted in the 5th round. His speed and vision could make him a late round gem.
On paper, New England's secondary looks very similar to Miami's. You have 2 solid, hardhitting safetys, and a few rookies trying to compete for a few vet's jobs. Meriwhether and Sanders are very good (although IMO Miami has the slight edge) while rookie Patrick Chung is looking for an opportunity in. Sean Springs and Leigh Bodden are unspectacular, but very solid, and better than Miami's 2 starting corners. The X factor here remains Darius Butler. The corner from UConn has some serious ups, and I'm sure will try and outplay Davis and Smith on the Fins for best rookie corner in the East.
As for Buffalo, I think they have a very good secondary, and hate to put them last. Donte Whitner is a great safety and Leodis McKelvin is one of the shining stars of their defense. However Terrence McGee has had health problems and Ko Simpson at SS isn't anything special, plus he has had legal issues off the field. But the Bills secondary, when healthy is still very good. Jarius Byrd, the rookie corner from Oregon, posted a slow 40 time in the combine, but I still believe will make a healthy transition to the NFL after a few years under his belt. The Bills, have some young guns at corner and a beast at Whitner; I put them last here but by the years end they can easily be the top rated secondary in the AFC East.
My Rankings- BUF (4), MIA (3), NE (2), NYJ (1)
Finally, Buffalo receives some love; I award them the title of AFC East's best Special Teams, and present them 4 position points. At kicker, Rian Lindell has been splitting the uprights as a reliable guy for the last 6 years in Buffalo. Although he has kicked 50+ yarders in each of the last 4 years, his 78.9% FG percentage in 2008 was actually ranked last between the 4 kickers in the division. Brian Moorman has been a Bill for all 9 years of his NFL service and is arguably the best punter in the AFC. Returning kicks and punts are also a sight to see in Buffalo. The speed of Parrish and McKelvin is simply too much. Buffalo does alot of things right, and IMO are the most balanced special teams group in the East.
Miami comes next. 1st year kicker, Dan Carpenter, hopped on as a unsigned pick to nail his first handful of kicks in a row. Punter, Brandon Fields, led the AFC East with most punts in the opponents 20. As for punt returning, Ted Ginn is without a doubt electryfying, and Davone Bess and Patrick Cobbs have shown to be stellar playmakers on kickoffs.
The Pats take 3rd. Gostkowski has had tough shoes to fill after Vinieteri's departure, but has done well. In fact, his 90% FG percentage last year was the best in the division. Chris Hanson has done a decent job at punter. As for returning punts and kicks, Wes Welker is a one man show. The guy is so exciting to watch and seems to be able to do everything. However, it looks as if there is nobody else close to his level to fill in, and he has had a few problems with fumbles in the past.
The Jets sweep the basement here, and are awarded 1 position point. Jay Feely has kicked well, but different websites seem to be wondering who will actually punt for them this year (Can somebody comment and help me out here lol). Jet fans are hoping somebody can get the job done. Leon Washington can only do so much to propel the Jets from last here, the shifty RB from Florida State can break one every time he touches the ball. However, when compared to the other 3 squads, the Jets end up last.
My Rankings- NE/MIA (4), BUF (2), NYJ (1)
When it comes to coaching, I feel there's nobody that knows the game better on the sidelines than Bill Belicheck. Although, he did blatently cheat when he really didn't need to, his knowledge is a big reason for the Pats' success over the last decade. On the other hand, when it comes to anaylzing talent and managing athletes and personalities for building a team to win a championship, I would want no other than Bill Parcells as the head honcho in the front office. It is a great feeling in the offseason when you have that trust in the coaching staff, and subsequently must be a great feeling for players to have that confidence going into a brand new season. I wonder how successful a Parcells/Belicheck pairing would be? Would they combine wisdom or butt heads? Whichever the case, the Pats and the Dolphins have 2 talented groups on the sidelines, and are led by knoweldgable, accurate quarterbacks who are looked up to as leaders on their team. For this, the two teams are a deadlock for 1st place.
In third, I would go with Buffalo. Dick Jauron is going into his 4th year as Buffalo Head Coach, and is looking to break the streak of 3 years straight with a mediocre 7-9 record. Newly acquired Terrell Owens should offer some help for Trent Edwards who is looking to break into the next caliber of quarterback. But he has had his history. Losing Jason Peters hurts, leaving them with a subpar offensive line, however Buffalo is sick of fighting from the bottom of the AFC East. There's nowhere to go but up they are probably looking to follow in Miami's worst-to-first agenda; honestly I expect them to be a bit fired up going into the 2009 season.
I'd put New York last here, because honestly you really do not know what to expect from this team. A totally revamped squad, New York is putting alot of praise in rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez. I believe their solid line and running game should take some heat off him, but the wide receiver position is seriously lacking alot of depth. Losing Coles hurt, and Sanchez may struggle to find open targets in the big leagues. However, New York is definitely showing excitement every time you hear about them and they are hoping they can mimic the Ravens of last year with lights-out performances from the defense every week. However, the offseason has showed players bickering, training camp fights and a coach challenging to fight opposing players. Although the Jets could be a break out team, alot of arrows are also pointing that this team could be a royal mess at the end of the year.
So, now that all positions have been settled, I separated the results into 2 different categories. I will show the results without my rankings + input and I will show the results with my rankings. Remember, the 4 bloggers did not rate O-Line, Secondary, Special Teams, and Coaching so if you choose to evaluate those results keep that in mind. I am merely separating the two due to the fact that some people may think I am a biased, homer, a-hole; I tried to stay objective as possible, and for that I will show both results so we don't have to engage in the argument that I was not fair to all sides.
AFC EAST Results: Position Points without my Rankings (QB, RB,WR, DT, LB)-
Pats Pulpit- NE (17), MIA/NYJ (12), BUF (9)
The Phinsider- MIA/NE (14), BUF (13), NYJ (9)
Gang Green Nation- NE (15), NYJ (13), MIA (12), BUF (10)
Buffalo Ramblings- NE/NYJ (14), BUF (12), MIA (10)
TOTAL RESULTS- NE (60), MIA (48), NYJ (45), BUF (44)
Remember, these are only how each blog voted, and only includes the 5 positions voted upon. As you can see:
Pats Pulpit liked their team best, with NY and MIA tied, and BUF last.
The Phinsider liked their team tied with NE, BUF right behind them and NYJ last.
Gang Green liked a balanced voting with NE 1st, then NYJ, MIA and BUF last.
Buffalo Ramblings liked NE and NYJ first, BUF after, and MIA last.
So each blog voted a bit differently, and some a bit generous to their own squad, but in total I think they all combined to make it look just about right. With Brady back, the 4 bloggers collectively agree NE is favored in the East (60). AFC East Champion MIA (48) is a bit behind but take the #2 spot. The Jets (45) are right above Buffalo (44) for the 3rd spot in the East.
Remember this does NOT include my rankings, if you are curious to see how the AFC East fares with all positions considered, see below....

The Rankings are very similar, although Buffalo fared a bit better then the Jets when all my rankings were considered. New England still held a nice lead, yet Miami held bit a cushion on Buffalo and New York.
That's all folks...
If you made it this far I WANT TO THANK YOU for taking the time to read it, I know it may be alot to swallow (ask Tom Brady more about that..). Also want to thank the bloggers for taking time to offer their opinions with each other in the first place and have a friendly and intelligent debate. If you enjoyed this article and analysis, please REC' it below, because I will post this link as a FanShot on all 4 AFC East Blogs and I would like this to be easy to be found on the front page. If you did not enjoy this please leave a comment for me, including if you have any other comments, questions or shout outs, but you have to be crazy to get this far and not like what you've seen. Crazy, or a jets fan.. kidding kidding, but not really
Thanks to all and let's get ready for some football and what I know will be another HEATED battle for the AFC EAST CROWN!!!
